Now that Michael Vick’s coaching internship with the Kansas City Chiefs is over, the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is heading into the studio for the next chapter of his career.
Vick is being hired by Fox Sports as an NFL analyst, according to A.J. Perez of USA TODAY Sports.
Fox Sports will formally announce on Sunday that Vick, a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback, will serve as a studio analyst for FOX NFL Kickoff, the show that leads into Fox NFL Sunday. Vick will also make regular appearances on FS1 studio shows as part of his new job.
"I'm very excited," Vick told USA TODAY Sports in a phone interview on Friday. "Over the last seven or eight months, I've done a lot of interviews, and I think I've gotten better as I've been put in those situations more often. Things really came together (with Fox) over the last couple months. They have shows that I have always watched and admired. My friends and family are thankful and proud of me."
Four years ago, Chip Kelly was the head coach of the Eagles while Vick was the team’s starting quarterback. Now Kelly is a college football analyst on ESPN while Vick will be appearing on Fox Sports. Oh, and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be calling actual NFL games on CBS.
Funny how quickly things change!
